Huawei In America
When we opened up our first U.S. office in 2001, we endeavored to become a job creator, local economy contributor and active participant in the community.
We are very proud of our efforts in the U.S. In 2013, our U.S. revenues were approximately $876 million. Notably, as a reflection of our global commitment to innovation, each year we invest about 30% of our U.S. revenues into local innovation, totaling $276 million in 2011.
Since we began operating in the United States, we have invested over $800 million in U.S.-based R&D. Our 13 facilities contribute to the local and state economies in which we operate, and 75 percent of all hires are local, including key technical leaders, senior managers and executives. Huawei has purchased more than US$30 billion in goods and services from nearly 300 U.S.-based technology providers since 2006. Those contracts have covered software, components, chipsets, and services, and have directly and indirectly created tens of thousands of job opportunities for American communities, while contributing growth and development opportunities for the U.S. high-tech sector and the broader Information Communications Technology (ICT) industry.
While our competitors are reducing or off-shoring American jobs, we are building new American opportunities. Our commitment to helping communities in need and being a good corporate citizen are top priorities for Huawei. Our most recent initiatives in the U.S. include:
- $30,000+ to support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Education in schools
- $100,000+ to national charities that support the health, education and success of children
- $150,000+ for general community support, including museums, hospitals and food banks
Huawei U.S. employees are encouraged to volunteer in activities that benefit communities and schools, and charitable organizations including, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Habitat for Humanity and local food banks.
As our business grows, we are committed to making even greater contributions to the U.S. economy and society as a whole.
